The Construction

The Statue Of Liberty was difficult to build. The 3 architects were Bartholdi, Gustave Eiffel, and Richard Moris Hunt. It was really hard trying to figure out how to support 100 tons of copper and make it able to withstand forceful winds. She had a French sculptor artist which was Frèdèric Auguste Bartholdi.
